Design Trends for 2017

Home > Blog

As a home stager /property stylist, it is important for me to know the latest design trends. I returned from my latest “educational” USA trip at the end of last year brimming with new ideas. Greatly inspired by Los Angeles where the climate and lifestyle matches ours in many ways; then the innovative, exciting NYC probably my favourite city, where the style is very trendy and also elegant; and of course the popular Hamptons, whose modern coastal style is very much suited to our climate.

According to Liz Connolly of InHanceIt Home Staging these are the design trends for 2017:

Here to stay – Industrial furnishings, Sanctuary bedrooms, Home offices, Mid-Century accents, Decks and succulents.

Goodbye – Chevron patterns, Copper & Rose gold, All White rooms, Quote art and sadly Subway tiles.

Hottest Trends  – Butterfly motifs, Gold and Brass, Natural wood, Bohemian accents, Velvet upholstery, Jewel tones, Rustic accents, Greenery

On-Trend – Brushed brass, Brushed gold, Pale greys, Alabaster

Waning Trends – Neutrals in paint colours are beginning to transition from monochromatic grey of the past 5 years to a more complex warm taupe and brown. This is influenced by the natural and organic materials and weathered, worn finishes.

Keeping up to-date with the trends is important but as a home stager I have to use these judiciously – just enough to be on-trend but still to appeal to the vast majority of people who are most likely to purchase each property. New trends make styling homes so exciting and makes us all feel fresh, new and enthusiastic.
